Build Self-Awareness by Preparing for Your Visit With Us

As a prospective patient of TGH North, you can help ensure a smooth and comfortable experience with some advanced preparation. Here’s how:

  • First, create a written list detailing your current medications, medical history and any allergies, which can help ensure that you won’t forget anything important while you are in our care.
  • Second, pack a small bag with some essential items, such as comfortable clothing, toiletries and a book or electronic device to help you pass the time during your hospital stay. Don’t forget to include a protective case for your eyeglasses, contact lenses, dentures or hearing aids if needed.
  • Third, be sure to arrange for any support you may need during or after your visit, such as a ride to and from the hospital, pet care while you are away from home and meals when you return.
  • Finally, don’t forget your personal identification and health insurance information.

Communicate Openly and Honestly With Our Providers

At our TGH North hospitals, we believe transparent and respectful communication is the cornerstone of effective health care. We urge you to ask questions and seek clarification from your health care team regarding any aspect of your treatment plan or any other concerns you may have. Also, you might consider having a trusted family member or friend by your side to advocate for you and serve as a second “set of ears.”

Finally, we encourage you to focus on maintaining a positive mindset and taking an active role in your recovery, including following your discharge instructions and other medical advice to the letter and engaging in any prescribed therapies or exercises. Your mental and emotional well-being will play a significant role in your healing process, and by staying informed, involved and optimistic, you can help ensure a successful hospital visit and recovery.

Visitor Information

At TGH North, we recognize the crucial role our visitors play in promoting the emotional well-being and recovery of our patients. Whether family members, friends or volunteers, these caring individuals provide vital support to our patients by offering comfort, companionship and a sense of connection during what may be a very challenging time.

When a patient is hospitalized, a visitor can alleviate feelings of isolation and anxiety, boost morale and create a more positive healing environment. Additionally, a visitor can aid in relaying essential information between the patient and their health care team, facilitating better communication and a clearer understanding of treatment plans and care instructions. The presence of a visitor can also help foster a sense of normalcy and social interaction, which can be particularly beneficial to a patient who is facing an extended hospital stay.
